Enlil not only gave you his skills to talk people into whatever you fancy, but also his restlessness. You find it hard to sit still and do nothing. Some of you even may be shy but you still love the exchange of information with like-minded people and enjoy competitions and the opportunity to show off your skills, especially the speed with which you solve even complex tasks.
Enlil is the leader of the gods since he deprived An of his power. He is also the god who found it most difficult to cope with the noise and hustle of mankind as their population grew. In his rage, he decided to cover the earth with a deluge that would kill all forms of life. After mankind had been saved by Utnapishtim and his wife, it was inevitable that the point would be reached when Enlil's nerves would again be on edge. This time, being aware that he was not able to convince the gods once more to destroy the humans, he decided to persuade them to abandon the bustling and overcrowded Earth and look for a brighter and quieter future in other parts of the universe.
His peace and quiet came with a price. Enki’s power increased, not only because of his creative skills which he used to build a new home for the gods, but also because of the diplomatic abilities of Enki’s wife Ninhursaga. The result of this is a kind of co-leadership of the two brothers including inevitable quarrels and camp-building among the other gods. Being not the greatest of warriors Enlil’s leadership is based on his exceptional skills of persuasion and manipulation. As god of the winds, he moves with incredible speed and always turns up where he is least expected to gather the necessary information for his next conspiracy. The only reason why Enki is still a serious threat to Enlil's leadership is the fact that Enlil could also be called the "God of Indiscretion", as he loves talking - about anything that comes to his mind, even about his plans and strategies.
